We are thrilled that you are considering submitting your baby room, kids room, baby shower, gender reveal party or birthday celebration to our Project Gallery. The Project Gallery is the community-driven portion of our website where users upload photos, information and sources about the projects they’ve designed and share these details publicly with our readers. Everyone who is a registered subscriber is encouraged to submit their decorating projects. We are proud to showcase projects of all styles, budgets and varieties—It’s what makes our brand so special! Below are answers to some common questions about our Project Gallery.
Can I win a prize for sharing my project in your gallery?
Just for fun, we provide a little incentive beyond the feel-good nature of inspiring others and sharing your talent with the world. Project Nursery celebrates your work on our social media channels often (psst. follow us on Instagram) and we highlight projects that simply, “knock our socks off” at the end of every month!
Project of the Month + Win a $50 PN Shop Gift Card
Project Nursery team members select 3-6 finalists in the room and party categories. A voting poll is set up for readers to select their pick and crown a winning favorite project of the month in both categories. The winner receives a $50 gift card to The Project Nursery Shop, and receives a featured post on our blog plus mad social media love.
What are some tips to get noticed by Project Nursery and it’s readers?
Be thorough: Please fill out your entire project page as thoroughly as possible; include a specific title for your project such as “A Gray and Yellow Modern Boy’s Nursery” and provide your sources as in actual website links to where you shopped the items within your project. Trust us, our readers really want to know this stuff! Also, don’t forget to complete your own bio, your picture included, from your account page so we can get to know you a bit too!
Be personal: Along with attractive designs, we’re also drawn to personal stories and inspiration, so we’d like to read how/why you brought your project to life.
Upload high-res photos and HD videos: Please upload the best quality photographs (no less than 1200 pix wide) and HD videos of your project. We highly recommend selecting a landscape photography for your “featured image”. Submissions with poor quality photographs will not be considered for our weekly and monthly contests.
Use natural light: When taking photos, capture as much natural light as possible and shoot with the light behind you. Be sure to check out Melisa’s important tips on “How to Photograph Your Nursery“.
Add tags: Tags—i.e., key words separated by commas—will help get you noticed when readers are searching within the gallery. Please add a couple of descriptive key words about your project in the tag section such as “jungle, safari, nursery, green, boy, modern, giraffe”.
